-i definitely walk my dog while wearing pajamas most mornings. problem is, he still pulls really bad..which results in him dragging me all over the block..and i get sweaty. so i don't want to get dressed for work, walk him, and be sweaty already. i think people are tired of my pajama-morning antics though. i mean i have like yoga shorts and a tank top on at 7am walking the dog..while other people are out there in gym clothes and normal clothes at the dog park. but why dirty more clothes just to walk him?
-my tax return (which was a ridiculously low amount and i'm upset about it, last year i got double. stupid taxes) was deposited into my account 4 business days after filing. i put off filing as long as possible because, if money is in my account, i'm more likely to spend it. and i need this tax return money for my half marathon trip to napa in july! but flights are still expensive (i'm thinking/hoping they will go down soon) so i haven't booked yet. and now i'm afraid i'm going to spend it.
-i am obsessed with this site -
i can't stop clicking through and looking at all the outfits. problem is, my closet is too full/overflowing (and a lot of stuff isn't even in the closet, just in a pile on top of the dresser..and next to the dresser) so i can't even find things that would look good together!
-i have a shopping problem. for example, shopping online before work is bad news. i don't even have any idea what i ended up buying. but new york & company has $90 off $180! and i spent about 100 after the coupon..
i bought this skirt:
and this lace-trimmed skirt:
and a cardigan or two:
and a few of these cowl neck tanks in different colors:
and this skirt (i really wanted it in blue but they only have the rose color):
-i seriously have a major shopping problem this week. in a quick 10-minute pre-lunch break, i checked out the sales on hautelook today. these pictures are going to be teeny because i can't copy the image links from the site:
first, they have KALYX sportsbras on sale, which are my absolute favorite. i saw them a few months ago on hautelook, was looking for new sportsbras, and figured since they were between $10-15, how could it not work out well? (victoria's secret ones are like $40! for a sportsbra! other big names are just as expensive.) these are amazing! and they're $10-15 this time. i love the one made for D-DD sizes especially (not shown below)
i bought this hat for gold cup, not realizing that it would not be delivered until after gold cup. but, it was $13. so it will probably sit in my closet until next year..or wine fest.
this clutch is so adorable, and only $26. i got it in this aqua color and coral too.
i've been looking for a new handbag, and this one converts into a backpack. whenever i fly home, i end up carrying a duffel bag and a backpack, and then i stuff my purse into the backpack. this purse turns into a backpack! so i'm thinking i can just use this purse as the purse/backpack..and it's such a clever idea.
-i need to stop online shopping. no more this month or next, no more. but the deals are just too good...here's how i'm rationalizing it - i haven't been going out to drink or going out to eat for the last month or two. and the things i'm buying are lower-cost items (i'm not buying designer stuff, i know i can't afford that). what's weird to me though, is that there are a few higher cost items i've been wanting for months (like inov-8s, $125, and a foam roller, but we don't have a hard surface in our apartment) but i keep putting those off to buy more low-cost stuff! i'm on this mission to become more fashionable, and to do so i feel like i need to add to my wardrobe. but, i also need to clean out my closet...so maybe buying more is a way to force myself to do so.
